Anthropocene

From earliest human records, and across many cultures, Nature has been embodied as Goddess.
The Ancient Greeks gave every tree and forest, every stream and river a female deity for protection. Western civilization, source of the Industrial Revolution, embedded Greek mythology in the elite education systems of Europe, from the Renaissance forward.
These series explore ecological collapse through an ecofeminist perspective, combining mythology, body language and chemical notation. My anachronistic deities, struggling to survive in environments blighted by human industry, are proxies for the bio-systems they traditionally blessed and protected.
